This restaurant is located in a srtip mall in Bonita Springs. It is a very attractive and somewhat intimate restaurant. They serve excellent New York style Italian cuisine and very nice fresh fish dishes. We have only been there once, but really liked it and plan on returning next time we are in Naples.

Open only for dinner, this white table cloth restaurant has a wonderful menu and wine list. The service was very attentive. Our party of eight all had outstandingly delicious meals. The sea bass was the best meal one in our party exclaimed. Tasted by another guest reassured it was amazing. The seafood pasta dish was covered abundantly with a tasty... More

We ate here on a Tuesday night and it was very busy and reservations are a must. The menu has some great choices and I had veal, which was very good. A number of pasta dishes as you can imagine. Nice salads. Wonderful deserts. The waiter was outstanding and made the evening fun. The place is small so the table... More

We visited on a Saturday night. The restaurant is very busy, very noisy and VERY good. It is a high quality establishment where the chefs know how to prepare excellent meals. The salmon was outstanding. The Osso bucco was the best I have ever had and that encompasses many fine restaurants. The cannoli and tiramisu were first rate. Overall it... More

Recommended by an acquaintance, it lived up to expectations. Although Valentines day we were seated promptly. The menu was understandably limited but offered enough of a choice. The service was extremely attentive and professional, with the understandably busy owner even stopping by to assure all was well. The wine list is extensive and very reasonably priced. Two shared Caesar salad... More

What a nice surprise. All the times I have been to the Ups store, I never paid attention to the restaurant. We had 7:45 reservations, and we were seated promptly, which was very nice for a Friday night. We started with the grilled calamari appetizer which was good. Everyone had an Arugula salad that was fabulous. The Bronzino was outstanding.... More

There's something about a cozy, intimate Italian restaurant that's warm and welcoming. That's what we found when having dinner with friends at La Fontanella. This was our second visit. There are a few tables outside on the sidewalk (overlooking a parking lot...) where it might be pleasant on a warm evening. Instead we sat inside at a cozy table for... More

We are back in Fl and have been to Fontanella's 6 or 7 times in the last 5 weeks. Our meals continue to be outstanding every time. The Osso bucco is my favorite - very meaty, falls off the bone, well flavored sauce and al sentence vegetables. The chicken sorrentino is also outstanding - light tomato basil sauce with hearty...
